    When I tried to load my copy of Microsoft Minesweeper this morning, it failed to load, and when I clicked on the icon, nothing happened. I then tried to uninstall and reinstall the app, but I get a page that says I should "Check your connection", and quotes error code 0x80004005. I run win10 on an acer aspire E15.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for that, KingKek. It partially solves my problem, but I would still like to know how to get Microsoft Minesweeper back, as it is not the only program that has stopped loading on my machine, so I need a fix for the error code quoted.
    Also, I do the daily challenges on Minesweeper and other Microsoft games, and I don't think the copy game you sent me has this facility.
